Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0149057A1] A roaming subscriber transmits a feature code when in a visited network (2). The MSC (4) routes it to the home network (1), where it is intercepted by a server (5). The server (5) determines that a pre-paid call is being requested and routes a request to a pre-pay platform (7), by-passing the HLR (6). The pre-pay platform (7) sets up the call.
